Tutor: Lorraine Spindler BA (Hons) Dip Euro HumGo to all Courses
A celebration of the extraordinary stories of ordinary clothes. We will scratch below the glossy surface of the fashion industry to expose the mechanics of fashion business, the hidden world of the workroom and the role of makers, and the experiences of consuming, wearing, and caring for ordinary clothes throughout history. Case studies show how our ancestors’ clothes were designed, stitched, worn, mended, and remembered to deepen our historical understanding.
